Disclaimer Terracan DIY Maintenance & Repairs [for Modifications read here]
DIY maintenance and repairs can result in significant cost savings and can lead to a better understanding of the technology that is employed in a vehicle. The knowledge and experience gained by spending time on DIY repair jobs and maintenance of the own 4WD might be very useful one day when the 4WD breaks down in a remote area and this knowledge can be used for a successful repair.   
However, failures - due to e.g. lack of experience, lack of qualification or misinformation - can lead to devastating consequences. A bolt tightened with the wrong torque might break one day, or might just fall off. If this bolt has a crucial function in the steering system of a car and it happens when driving 100 km/h: this mistake could be deadly!
Obviously, everyone carrying out repairs and maintenance work has to comply with the duty of care and any safety risk needs to be addressed in an appropriate manner to prevent such kind of devastating scenarios. Everyone reading the articles on 4x4 Chautauqua has to understand
